The World Around Us & PDMU: Celebrating Our Sports
The resource consists of two books, one for the pupil and one for the teacher. The Pupil Book examines the history and development of several of our sports. The book lauds the achievements of sporting stars – international and local, professional and amateur and highlights the influence they have had on their respective sports.
The activities in the Teacher Book provide ideas to investigate important historical and emerging issues in sport such as cultural identity, racism, gender equality and social class. They give opportunities to study sport in a cross-curricular way with most areas of learning addressed.
